Oscar Knox Fund Donate Fundraise Oscar was a kind, funny, sweet and charismatic little boy who was only setting out at the very beginning of his life when it was cruelly stolen from him by neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma is a devastating childhood cancer for many children and their families. It affects mostly babies and children under five years old, with the average age at diagnosis just 19 months. It has one of the lowest survival rates of all childhood cancers despite intense and aggressive treatment, with a child dying from this disease on average every ten days. As parents who lost their first-born and much-loved son to neuroblastoma, we are passionate about funding research in order to improve treatments and survival rates for other children fighting the disease. Around 110 children are diagnosed with neuroblastoma in the UK and Ireland each year. Almost half will die, and those who do survive will suffer the horrific consequences of highly toxic treatment. By investing in research, we can help more children survive and go on to live happy, healthy lives; and with your help that is what we will do. “Oscar didn’t die because he had cancer; he died because we ran out of options to treat it. By investing in research, we can help more children survive and go on to live happy, healthy lives; and with your help that is what we will do. All money raised by the Oscar Knox Fund will be ring-fenced by Solving Kids’ Cancer to help find and fund promising new therapies for children who are fighting neuroblastoma right now, and in the future.” Please select a donation amount (required) £5 £10 £20 Other Set up a regular payment Donate Terms and Conditions Solving Kids’ Cancer makes no deductions from donations made to the Oscar Knox Fund. 100% of the funds raised are restricted for the funding of research grants, research-related activities of the charity in accordance with Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) guidelines and support costs to cover the purchase of branded merchandise and fundraising activities dedicated to raising money solely for the Oscar Knox Fund.
